At the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard, the minesweeper under the project 12700 Georgy Kurbatov was removed from the workshop. This was reported by the press service of the enterprise.

An operation was carried out to withdraw from the workshop a mine defense ship (PMO) project 12700 "George Kurbatov"

According to the press service, in June the minesweeper completed work on forming the hull and part of the ship’s superstructure, saturating them with systems and mechanisms. All further work will be carried out outside the workshop; launching of the ship is planned in September.

During the completion of the construction work, it is necessary to complete the formation of the superstructure of the minesweeper, to carry out the installation of the tower-mast device, antenna equipment and general ship systems.

"George Kurbatov" is the first production minesweeper of the project 12700, laid down after the lead ship of the series "Alexander Obukhov". The body was poured on February 26, 2015, and the official bookmark on April 24, 2015. The launch was scheduled for September 2017, but on June 7, 2016, a fire occurred on the ship, affecting about 600 square meters. meters. The fire significantly damaged parts of the casing of both sides above the upper deck, the deck of the forecastle, part of the VP deck with its reinforcing set, and other connections between the 10th and 90th frames. After that, it was decided to postpone the construction of the ship.

Minesweepers of the 12700 project are able to use the latest hydroacoustic stations located both on the ship itself and on remote-controlled and autonomous underwater vehicles, and they have an automated mine action control system. Able to use traditional and traditional weapons. The ships of the Alexandrite series have a unique hull made of monolithic fiberglass, formed by vacuum infusion.

    What a day it is for good news regarding the Russian Navy. And the ship was taken out of the workshop, so also a single day for the laying of new ships.

    I wonder how these fiberglass minesweepers are in repair? Damaged enclosures of this type can be reliably repaired? That is, an explosion nearby, stranded, bulk - and that?

      Fiberglass and epoxy will not help?

      it is easier to repair than iron, you can just glue everything with PE resin and fiberglass.

    So the "fire victim" showed up. The cost of a fire is an extra two years of waiting.
    Finally redid

    It’s not made of metal, my minesweeper of comparable size (length 61m, width 10,5m crew 56 people) and a displacement of 60 tons less. What was put there?

      Where does it grow? Write-offs are faster than commissioning new ones !!! The fleet does not grow but decreases with catastrophic speed !!! All that is now put into repair for 80 percent is just waiting for a write-off, since there is no repair and no kama

        How many minesweepers were written off this year?

          all Soviet minesweepers are outdated morally and physically, ... that is, their combat effectiveness is doubtful

        The write-off of the ships is faster than the commissioning of new ones !!!

        Yes Yes . We all will die

        Perhaps you are right in things, I am far from naval arithmetic. But in their combat capabilities, I think they are far superior to junk. Take the same RTOs, like a small one, but for 2500 km. They’ll launch the calibers, Mama Do not Cry, and no destroyer with the cruiser 20 years ago could do this, with all its external power. Maybe I'm wrong, but always new, must surpass the old in power. If before the front of 800 km was guarded by dozens of aviation divisions, now it’s enough to control just a link of 4 aircraft. hi
